Joint Task Force Heavy [HVY] has vinyl stickers with our patch design inbound!
With the growth of the Task Force, it will be a nice way to fund certain projects or prizes, and give our pilots and fans something cool to have in their hands to display their pride in HVY!
Product will be ready to ship by Friday, June 21st, 2019! Check out our Store for more details!
In order to further separate ourselves from other Squadrons in terms of identity, we have taken on a new patch design that will represent [HVY]!
We have retired the Grim Reaper, and put our GBU-16's on in his place, as we do not want mistaken identity with our friends at Grim Reapers Squadron. HVY, after all, is all about dropping warheads on foreheads.
Special thanks to [HVY]Shock for the design change that will carry us into the next era of HVY!
We have joined forces with our friends in the Southern Hemisphere, ECV 56 CONDOR (Escuadrón de Combate Virtual)based in Argentina! We couldn't be happier to have another group of pilots flying along side us.
Please check out their website at http://www.ecv56condor.com.ar/ - for more information on what their Squadron is all about, and to expand your network of virtual squadrons here in DCS World!
As many of you can already tell, Joint Task Force Heavy [HVY] is an extremely adaptive group of squadrons, that (so far) have made huge advancements in rank structure, squadron expectations, and amount of aircraft we have integrated into our force.
On March 13th, 2019, we take expand further to take delivery of the Grumman F-14B Tomcat, with VFC-119 being the squadron they are assigned to.
With this expansion of capability, it is well understood that there will be a measure of movement within the squadrons - pilots who want to transfer to VFC-119 after delivery of the aircraft. This is OK. However, I am asking that all potential transfers fly the aircraft for two weeks to get a feel for it, and to make a final decision on the transfer itself.
Until then, hit the manuals, get some rest, and get your vacation time squared away with your employers (haha).
See you on the flight-line.
We have been picking up a steady stream of pilots in the past few months, and are well on our way to having pilots on 24/7 to represent JTFHVY.
While our numbers are rising (with a little bit of ebb and flow), we need to recruit for our Combat Air Patrol and Helicopter Rescue Squadrons and get those wings balanced with the rest.
In short, we need F-15C Eagle and F-5E-3 Tiger II billets filled in the fixed wing realm for the 509th Squadron, and UH-1H, SA342, Mi-8 or Ka-50 pilots for the 48th Rescue Squadron.
Please remember that we depend on Rescue, JTAC, Asset Deployment and need rotary pilots to handle that!
Any leads? Send them our way for recruitment.
